The European Commission has stressed that Internet trust and security are vital for a vibrant digital society,and has presented 14 actions to improve cybersecurity within the European Union. The focus is to preserve a well-functioning internal market and free movement of data. This will boost growth and jobs under the cybersecurity initiative. The idea is to put legal measures for online security by placing incentives to foster investments, transparency and user awareness. Protection of information and ICT infrastructure is fundamental in a functional global economy. The price for cybersecurity is often barriers and loss of effectiveness when new demands slow down transactions and the flow of data.
